[Ads-l] **Final** Call for Abstracts – North American Research Network in Historical Soci =?utf-8?Q?olinguistics_=28NARNiHS=29_=E2=80=93_?=Fourth Annual Meeting (NARNiHS 2022)

I don't have a dog in this fight, but reading the "About" section of the 
homepage of the North American Research Network in Historical 
Sociolinguistics, suggests it is about "the study of historical 
sociolinguistics in North America" and not the study of sociolinguistics 
OF North American historical sociolinguistics.

It is intended to "provide opportunities for North American linguists 
working in the field to come together" and "be a conduit for 
professional ties with the Historical Sociolinguistics Network (HiSoN) 
and other organizations thereby facilitating international connections 
and collaborations for North American historical sociolinguists."

I see no limitation on research interests or membership eligibility to 
only people in parts of North America or only languages spoken in parts 
of North America.

The research interests of members listed on the site include Mayan 
languages, California Spanish, Mexican Spanish, Spanish of the American 
Southwest, Colonial Spanish, French varieties in North America, 
Louisiana French, and several other languages not traditionally 
associated with North America.  I also see no limitations in the 
membership requirements that would preclude anyone from anywhere else in 
North America from participating.  I also see people from places other 
than North America in the membership list.

It does seem to be a group headquartered in North America intended to be 
of some benefit to people located in North America.

Unless I'm missing something, the argument on this thread is premised on 
something that simply isn't true, or at least not on its surface.

>>
>>  Abstracts will be evaluated on the following criteria:
>>
>>  - explicit discussion of which theoretical frameworks, methodological pro=

>>
>>  - sufficient (if brief) presentation of data sources and examples to allo=
>w reviewers a clear understanding of the scope and claims of the research;
>>
>>  - clear articulation of how the research advances knowledge in the field =

>>
>>  Abstracts should also be anonymized to allow for blind peer review. Failu=
>re to adhere to these criteria will increase the likelihood of non-acceptan=

>>
>>  General Requirements:
>>
>>  1) Abstracts must be submitted electronically, using the following link: =
>http://linguistlist.org/easyabs/narnihs2022 .
>>
>>  2) Authors may submit a maximum of two abstracts: one single-author abstr=
>act and one co-authored abstract.
>>
>>  3) Authors may not submit identical abstracts for presentation at the NAR=
>NiHS meeting and at the LSA Annual Meeting or one of the other LSA Sister S=
>ocieties (ADS, ANS, NAAHoLS, SCiL, SPCL, SSILA).
>>
>>  4) After an abstract has been submitted, no changes of author, title, or =
>wording of the abstract, other than those due to typographical errors, are =
>permitted. If accepted, authors will be contacted for a final version for t=
>he abstract booklet.
>>
>>  5) Papers must be delivered as projected in the abstract or represent bon=
>a fide developments of the same research.
>>
>>  6) Authors are expected to attend the conference and present their own pa=
>pers.
>>
>>  7) Presentations will be delivered via a video-conferencing platform, mos=
>t likely Zoom. Technical details and instructions regarding the platform fo=
>r our NARNiHS Annual Meeting will be sent to authors in due time.
>>
>>  8) After acceptance, authors will be given an option to have their live p=
>resentation recorded during the meeting and archived for future online view=
>ing.
>>
>>  Abstract Format Guidelines:

>  captions, examples, and references) must fit on a single (1) additional pa=
>ge. No exceptions to these requirements are allowed.
>>
>>  3) Anonymize your abstract. We realize that sometimes it is not possible =
>to attain complete anonymity, but there is a difference between "inability =
>to anonymize completely" (due to the nature of the research) and "careless =
>non-anonymizing" (for example: "In Jones 2021, I describe..."). In addition=

>  by clicking on "File", then "Properties", removing your name if it appears=
>  in the "Author" line of the "Description" tab, and re-saving before submit=
>ting it). Please be aware that abstract file names might not be automatical=
>ly anonymized by the system; do not use your name (e.g. Smith_Abstract.pdf)=
>  when saving your abstract in PDF format, rather, use non-identifying infor=
>mation (e.g. HistSoc4Lyfe_NARNiHS.pdf). Your name should only appear in the=
>  online form accompanying your abstract submission. Papers that are not suf=
>ficiently anonymized wherever possible (whether in the text of the abstract=
